Review: Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant

Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant Edmonton

So often, posts I see on social media end up influencing where I eat in Edmonton.

That’s what led Mike and I to Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant (9314 34 Avenue) last week.

I had been seeing photos and video on Instagram showing these sizzling dishes of rice and meat that looked so delicious (and fun – what with the sizzle and all!) that when we were planning a dinner with our friends Brittney and Bin, I really pushed to go to Me 2.

Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant is located in a strip mall with lots of other great ethnic restaurants. 

Me 2 specializes in teppanyaki, a style of food that’s served on a hot steel plate. Most teppanyaki experiences I was familiar with before Me 2 were typically the style of a Japanese Village, where there’s a teppanyaki chef cooking your meat, fish, and vegetables on a longer hot, iron plate in front of you so it’s like a dinner and a show. 

The Teppan grill style at Me 2 is still like a show – just without that individual chef. The ‘show’ at Me 2 (which is reflected in its name) is the ‘sizzling’ that occurs when you pour sauce over your dish.

Inside Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant!

“Sizzle it your way” – by choosing your preferred toppings (from beef to duck, shrimp to steak or salmon) then choosing your sauce (Osaka Barbecue, House Special Black Pepper, Japanese Curry or Herb Cream). 

Your meat is served with rice or Japanese-style spaghetti (which I totally want to try!) and vegetables on a hot plate that stays hot at 80C for up to 20 minutes. 

The sauce is served separately, so you can pour it over your dish and get that cool sizzling effect!

Most of the sizzling plates range from $12 to $16 depending on your protein. There are daily specials where some proteins will be cheaper than any others (like Tuesday the duck is on special and Thursday beef is on special), and if you order during lunch (before 4:30 p.m.) then you also get a small appetizer, miso soup and dessert with your sizzling plate, which is really great value! 

You can also add additional toppings to any of the sizzling plates like eggs, cheese or mushrooms ($1.50 each) or fried garlic, corn and scallions ($0.75 each).

Yes please we’d like to add an egg!

We all really enjoyed our sizzling dishes! 

The presentation is awesome and once you mix everything together – meats, rice, vegetables, and sauce, I thought it tasted really good (and on that very cold day – totally warmed us up!) 

I thought my duck plate was especially flavourful with the House Special Black Pepper sauce.

Mike and Brittney both got the Osaka Barbecue sauce which was pre-mixed into the dish and didn’t sizzle (though Brittney had come for lunch a different time and the Osaka Barbecue did come as a sizzling side sauce, so just be sure to ask when you order!) 

They also hide margarine inside the rice or spaghetti so when that breaks out it adds some richness to the meal too.

Takoyaki at Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant.

While the sizzling hot plates are Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant’s specialties, they do offer other dishes, including single-serve Japanese hot pots and a variety of appetizers including takoyaki and tofu (Bin’s orders) and gyoza (Mike’s orders).

We also tried their spicy chicken wings with fries. Good wings – nothing special about the fries.

We had a great dinner at Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant! 

Our server was super attentive, the food came out quite quickly (and hot-sizzling!),  it’s a really cool concept with great presentation and flavourful food. The prices are good for the portions you get.

I’d definitely like to try some of the other sauces and proteins on my return visits! 

So have you been to Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant? 

What did you think?!

  • I haven't had a really good, loaded potato skin in a long time. So comforting. πŸ™πŸ» This dish is part of @yourAGA's #ZincTapasTuesday - they're offering new menu items to coincide with their new free admission Tuesday (and Wednesday). I got to try some of the dishes tonight with some #foodfriends! My other favourites of the night was the duck breast and a killer pulled pork sandwich that's just $4! πŸ”Thanks @chefdaveomar. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

  • I feel like poke has been allllll over my feed lately! Pronounced "po-kay," this traditional Hawaiian raw fish 🐠 salad, typically served with sauce over rice 🍚, has finally hit the Prairies. 🌾 Over on the blog (www.linda-hoang.com, link in bio), I review the new @OnoPokeCoYEG, which literally translates to "delicious poke." 😊  Delicious poke indeed. Pictured here πŸ“Έ is Ono's Original Ahi tuna poke bowl. Have you tried poke? Are you as thrilled as I am that we finally have great poke options in Edmonton?! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

  • This weekend @mikethyking & I had a great #staycation at the @deltaedmsouth! We love how this hotel is #petfriendly so @OliveAndArtie were able to spend the weekend with us too. 🐢❀️ We also had a great dinner at their 4404 restaurant. Looking forward to coming back here tmrw night for #IndulgenceYEG, a #yegfood & wine festival 🍷 taking place at the Delta. Tickets support the Junior League of Edmonton & I believe some are still available on their website if you want to spice up your Monday with basically unlimited food & wine! ✨

Pictured here is Chef Cowan's fried chicken, lentils, and carrots dish topped with a fried egg. 🍳 Be sure to see these two in action again for Bacon Day - a charity event they put on each September.
